Dutch investment firm Kempen Capital Management has launched the Private Markets fund.
The strategy invests through a selection of fund managers in four private asset classes: unlisted companies in private equity, infrastructure, land (agricultural land and forestry) and real estate.
In the private equity bucket, the fund will look at a broad spectrum of investments, with venture capital and small and lower mid-market buy-outs in Europe as the main subclasses. As for the other asset classes, Kempen’s private market strategy will invest on a global scale with a focus on developed markets.
Sven Smeets, co-head of the Private Markets Fund, said: “We have built the most efficient and accessible fund possible, designed to give investors access to diversified private markets in one place.
“The Private Markets Fund adds diversification to the traditional asset classes. In the Netherlands, it is a virtually unique combination. We can offer this opportunity by building on the expertise within our team and the knowledge of Kempen’s specialised departments.”
The Private Markets Fund is available for professional investors in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.
